Well ... I was singing a Carole King song in the shop this morning while two ladies were browsing.
I was thinking to myself "Poor things .. but it's my shop and it's the price you pay for walking through the door."
I looked at her and waited for the punch line and she could see the disbelief in my eyes, so she said "I'm serious!"
She made my day - which is why I'm taking this moment to brag.
Thank you very much (in my best Elvis Presley voice)***
The reason I make such a big deal of this is because I KNOW I have a terrible singing voice. I recorded myself singing "I Honestly Love You" when I was a teenager. Until I heard that recording, I believed that I could sing.
I remember the devastating disappointment when I realised that I was tone deaf and would never be a famous singing star!
Many people, during my life, have laughed hysterically at my singing.
Many people have told me to 'not give up my day job' when listening to my singing.
Even Adoring Husband, who loves me, has asked me to NOT sing.
This is why I make such a big deal of today's experience with the lovely lady who told me I have a beautiful tone.
Aside from that, for the first time, I've signed up a male to my next photography workshop. There should actually be two or three males in this class, so that will be interesting ... and very different.
It was a good day in the shop, with quite a few new customers ... and still the locals' catch cry "I didn't know you were here" is echoing in my ears.
I made an appointment for a third pool quote. This will be a concrete pool, instead of fibreglass, and they're coming to see us on Saturday afternoon. A decision will be made very soon after that.
Now I'm going to watch the second half of the footy between my team and Adoring Husband's team. Fingers crossed that my team wins!
